  • A terrific way to spend the day in this hidden gem. Bring your own bikes or rent some, you can rent or bring your own tubes and kayaks to go down the river. They have pick up service for rental patrons. A enviromental center with play area for kids. As well as tons of paved and non paved trails for walking and bike riding. They also have a splash pad and covered play area and a handicap accessible nice new play ground and sports fields and tennis courts.
  • Nice park. Good for kayaking and canoeing. Well maintained shelters with fire places for groups . Sometimes during week days school field trips can be noisy. Great enclosed dog park.
